Daily Celebrations with Disney Junior

This year my little Isabella started kindergarten.
And although I'm excited for this next chapter in her life,
and the fact that I get to be the scrapbook mom,
I miss having her home as my buddy. 
I miss our leisurely late breakfasts over Doc McStuffins or Sophia the First
after her big brother is off to school
So, when we were at Walmart the other day for a diaper run,
and she saw all the great Disney Junior Halloween costumes they had, I knew just what to do!

I let her pick one!!!

Disney Jr Park Day

She's always asking to wear her dress up costumes to the park,
and I never let her because I know I'll just end up being in charge of the costume
after about 5 minutes.
So this time, we got a Minnie Mouse costume, bought some Halloween treats
and had a little mom and daughter play date at the park.
She was so thrilled!

We even got fancy and got some cute Minnie Mouse paper plates
and napkins to eat our little Halloween snack on.
Isabella was so excited to find a Minnie Mouse doll that matched her
fun new Minnie Mouse costume, so of course we had to bring her home with us too.

Now that school has started, I feel like I spend the majority of my day
in the car driving from one thing to the next and I don't get a whole lot
of time just sit and talk with Isabella like we used to.
So, it was nice to sit and chat about the kids in her class, and how amazing
her teachers are, and how she can't wait to dress up for Halloween this year.
And at our house it's Halloween all month long, so we're all about 
multiple costumes, lots of Halloween parties, and celebrating the entire month!


So what I learned:
Dress up! Take five. Have a picnic. Be present.
Because there's only so many days left in her life that she will
want to dress up like Minnie Mouse and go to the park with her mom for a picnic.

And in the spirit of Minnie Mouse, I made a cute pink printable for you
to hang in your little girl's room - Keep Calm and Put a Bow On It!
Because really, everything is better with a bow!

I love the idea of a dress-up playdate in the park. I agree that my daughter started Kindergarten this year and I don't have as much one-on-one time with her either. I will have to surprise her with a playdate like this! #client
